HP SiteScope software monitors the availability and performance of distributed IT infrastructures including servers, operating systems, network and Internet services, applications and application components.

HP SiteScope continually monitors more than 75 types of IT infrastructure through Web‑based architecture that is lightweight and highly customizable. With HP SiteScope, you gain the real‑time information you need to verify infrastructure operations, stay apprised of problems, and solve bottlenecks before they become critical. HP SiteScope is an important component of both the HP Operations Center software and the HP Business Availability Center software, providing agentless availability and performance monitoring and management.

How HP SiteScope works

  • HP SiteScope provides a centralized, scalable architecture.
  • HP SiteScope is implemented as a Java™ server application and runs on a single, central system as a daemon process.
  • HP SiteScope Java server supports three key functions: data collection, alerting, and reporting.
  • HP SiteScope enables system administrators to monitor your IT infrastructure remotely from a central installation without the need for agents on the monitored systems.
  • HP SiteScope accomplishes remote monitoring by logging into systems as a user from its central server, which can run on Windows®, UNIX®, and Linux® platforms.
  • HP SiteScope offers optional failover support to give you added redundancy and automatic failover protection in the event that an HP SiteScope server fails.
